Organoids are in-vitro derived 3D cell aggregates derived from primary tissue or stem cells that are capable of self-renewal, self-organization and exhibit organ functionality. Organoids address the limitations of existing 2D model systems by providing:
• Similar composition and architecture to primary tissue: Organoids harbor small population of self-renewing stem cells (such as intestinal crypt stem cells) that can differentiate into cells of all major cell lineages, with similar frequency as in physiological conditions.
• Relevant models of in-vivo conditions: Organoids are more biologically relevant to any model system and are amenable to manipulate niche components and gene expression.
• Stable system for extended cultivation: Organoids can be cryopreserved as biobanks and expanded indefinitely by leveraging self-renewal and the differentiation capability of the stem cell populations.
Organoids can be cryopreserved using standard cell freezing techniques however freeze/thaw viability remains a challenge. The 3dGRO Organoid Freeze Medium is a proprietary optimized cryopreservation media for multiple organoids cell types (etc. mouse intestinal organoids, human colon and lung organoids). The media supports higher freeze/thaw viabilities compared to other commercial or homemade organoid freezing media formulations.
